Digging around the web tonight, I stumbled upon an interesting Czech web site, ExtraHardware.cz, that appears to offer some details around Intel’s upcoming E5-2600 v2 processor. I’m not sure of the timeline for when the E5-2600 v2 will be released, but I imagine we can expect them to be available sometime in the next few months. Here is a quick summary of what was revealed.
- Up to 12 cores per CPU
- Shared cache of up to 30MB
- Memory speeds of up to 1866MHz
- Socket compatibility with existing blade servers with Intel Xeon E5-2600 CPUs
As an added bonus, here’s the Czech website roughly translated:
24 CPU cores per 2 socket blade server would be a powerful virtualization host, but I’m curious to know your thoughts.
